Most hardware stores around here carry it. I find it very handy to keep around as it's flexible

I used Goop to seal the front and rear wheels on a 95 Tiger
7 years ago, many flats and 170,000 km's since then with no issues at all with the Goop sealant. Also did the rear on my 950 2 years ago.

Have any of you had problems inflating the tire after going tubeless? I did this last winter. Stock bear rims. The rear sealed easy. The front was a beaotch. Thought I would never get any air in it. Used a strap around the tire, a ton of tire lube and 100psi with out the valve stem in. I feel like I just got lucky, finally sealed. Not looking forward to replacing the tire.

Alexisan

Just on the nipple, 3 layers seems to do the job. Some of the nipples
will need a wee bit more as you"ll see upon final inspection.

I let it cure for 12 hours and put one layer on. Mounted the tire and it holds air. Lets see how it looks tomorrow...
So did someone do the front on an Adventure too?

Getting ready to do my rear rim on a 950. When you say just do the spoke do you do around the nipply also,and what about the valve stem, is an automotive stem that is used...

I did each spoke nipple with a glob of Goop, did 3 spokes at a time and let dry for about 20-30 minutes. I placed my wheel on a truing stand. I covered the spoke and the valley or indentation around the spoke, the Goop will flatten out as it dries. I did each spoke twice. When I put on the tire I had 2 that leaked. Had to redo them. I did my front wheel also, but inflating the front wheel and getting it to seat on the rim was next to impossible. The rear inflated no ptoblem at all. I have had one flat on the front, just pluged it, still going strong. Good luck.

I'd be tempted to add a strip of Christy's 10mil or 20 mil thick plumbing tape as rim tape too...That stuff is good.

Also a bit concerned about reseating the bead to the rim if a tire goes flat out in the boonies and I don't have a compressor to help with the volume. Suppose you could always throw in a tube if nothing else works.

How is it any easier to seat the bead if the tire has a tube in it?

Also, in my experience, even a tire with low pressure (25-ish) that does not have the bead seated will seat it on its own once you ride the bike. I think it is a combination of a little centrifugal force and putting heat into the tire but they always seat on their own for me.

Works perfectly, 2 sets of tyres and no problems.

So ...................... when you apply adhesive or sealant directly on the nipple, how do you tighten/adjust spokes ?










P.T. Barnum once said .............................



Flat track racers have been doing it for years with this method :

another lamb to the slaughter

Here I go. Needed a new back tire any way, so lets give tubeless a go. This is precleaning.
